One person died early Sunday morning in a two-vehicle wreck in Georgetown, according to South Carolina Highway Patrol Cpl. Judd Jones.

At about 12:42 a.m., a 2013 Volkswagon was driving southbound in the northbound lane of U.S. 17 just north of Sandy Island when it struck a 2013 Honda van head-on, Jones said.

The driver of the Volkswagon — who has yet to be identified by the coroner’s office — died on scene, while the person operating the van was taken to the hospital with serious injuries, Jones said.

The highway patrol is investigating the crash.
